Quite roads, The weekend that was.
History was made in recent weeks with disc brakes making their Grand Tour debut for the first time ever. Permitted by the UCI as part of the ongoing trial into their use, the system appeared in the Vuelta a España when Trek Factory Racing rider Markel Irizar used discs on selected stages.
It was just the first step. The use of such devices will be far more widespread in 2016 as all WorldTour teams will be permitted to utilise them throughout the season.
